TENSILE STRENGTH OF COMPACTED CLAYS

Tensile strength of soils is often considered negligible for engineering applications, being small or equal to zero. Nevertheless its evaluation and comparison with other geotechnical parameters can be interesting. This paper presents split-tensile and double-punch tests results carried out on compacted cohesive samples. Relationships among tensile strength, degree of saturation, unconfined compression strength, water content, plasticity index of cohesive samples are shown.
